There is nothing worse than making or witnessing a mistake and not learning from it. It doesn't only show immaturity but it also shows close-mindness. Whatever happened to live and learn? If you who were involved or know this guy didn't learn from it, then that is sad. Instead of trying to defend someone tooth and nail, you'd be a better friend telling someone to review what went wrong (and the fact what went wrong was not shifting in a wheelie but the fact that he was wheeling with a girl period) and learn from that.

This thread is getting past the point of ridiculous. I know I did some stupid too when I was young but I don't recall ever being that stubborn. :BangHead: Learn from the you are doing. :BangHead: (See my sig). 'nuff said.

After reading 3 pages, I just have one thing to say...

I'm glad everyone lived, I hope the recover soon and wish them all the best of luck.






We all do dangerous things on our rides. , riding a sportbike in Houston is dangerous enough with all the stupid cagers. But we do it cause we love it. And we've all made mistakes, and learned! I know I have! Salute to the fallen who don't get the opportunity to learn from their mistakes and/or the mistakes of others.

the only thing i am defendin is him not bein on this site to defend himself...he knows he screwed up. i dont do wheelies and i ride like a beginner (very cautious) when i have someone on the back so dont preach to me about livin and learnin...i have seen more lessons in my life than i care to have to deal with but it happens. all i was tryin to say is y sit here and talk about someone you dont even ****in know let alone doin it on the computer rather than to his, or someone he know, face...thats maturity right there. if u dont know the guy or the situation (i.e. not there) then either wish him well or shut the **** up!

Yah okay, whatever. Apparently, I hit a nerve. I don't know the guy, you are right. I can objectively talk about what I've read here. Take it or leave it and I believe I am outspoken enough that I'd also say it in person. Ask my friends. :laughing6

You know, if we didn't care, we wouldn't even post and take the time to type. So, think about it that way. It is all in good faith. All these threads about riders down is really getting to all of us. It hurts to read it over and over again, and yes, everyone has gotten touchy and tense. I know I have. Maybe I shouldn't care how people ride or what the heck they do on the streets but I do. Bite me.

He did something stupid, made stupid mistake...you admitted it, how about accepting it yourself instead of having a hissy and trying to come back and defend him for it? While your at it, explain WHY someone needed to be there in order to comment in regards to doing a wheelie on a public road with a passenger.

WHAT precisely is there to 'defend' about doing any kind of stunt on a public road, particulalry with a passenger?

u didnt hit a nerve, it just me off how everyone is quick to point the finger and talk online (vary rarely in person...in fact i have never seen it yet) like they do nothing wrong and the are gods gift to riding...i believe you would call it bein a hyprocrite. and there is supposed to be this biker "family" if you will but the only time everyone is remotely close to not runnin there mouth is when someone doesnt get up from a fall (and there is always one or two that say then)

1. check the attitude - never tell anyone/anygroup posting constructive opinions to stfu
2. this is a public board
3. while this may be a sensitive topic to some, all members are entitled to their opinions
4. and further to #3 above, all members are encouraged to contribute

we've had some good comments in here... let's keep it that way... and keep the drama out...

kthx

It is not that. We all make mistakes - I know as a noob with only 10K miles, I do. However, try to learn from mistakes rather than trying to defend and never learn.

About the thing with friends, if friends aren't supposed to give you , who is? I know my friends don't appreciate my comments all the time but they get to hear them anyways. :icon_bigg
